A Place Where Stars Rest by One Stroke

Regular price $35 Unit price  per 

Description:
Written by Katsumi Komagata in 2004, this whimsical cut-out paper book gently describes the night sky, and the community of stars that live and rest there. With textured and brightly colored paper, Komagata tells this tender and simple story with evocative minimalist visuals. Each page is complete with text in English, French, and Japanese. 

History: 
Founded in 1986 by graphic designer Katsumi Komagata, One Stroke is known for their deceptively simplistic paper-cut out works of art. Although One Stroke started as a graphic design studio, after the birth of Komagata’s daughter, the company pivoted to producing tender and beautiful children’s books. One Stroke’s exquisitely crafted books can be found at the MoMA gift shop and other art centers around the world.
